Miles as Spike Spiegel and myself as Faye Valentine from Cowboy Bebop. Photo taken by Al [Eurobeat King] at A-Kon 2009. Faye is, hands down, my favourite female anime character. For years I've put off making her yellow outfit because of personal insecurities, but I've lately found myself subscribing to a new philosophy: "I've wanted to do this outfit for 5 years. If I put it off for ANOTHER 5 years, I'll be 30. Just do the damn outfit!" And so, despite feeling like a hippo in a yellow thong, I survived cosplaying "Yellow Faye." All aspects of the costume were handmade except for the jacket, which was a lucky find at Goodwill. Miles' Spike was incredibly last minute. It was literally pulled together in a matter of 3.5 hours from a gargantuan women's suit, a few scraps of fabric, and a wig that I had luckily purchased but not styled. I truly wish we had taken a "before" picture, because the suit was laughably enormous and not at all Spike-like. ^__^; I'm hoping to find time to make him a suit from scratch before Otakon. I ran this through Photoshop because Faye should not have bags under her eyes from slaving over costumes for weeks and weeks, and because I like stark contrasts and grung effects when it comes to Bebop. Many thanks to Al for the photo!
